Softball Injury 2010 #1

A fact well-known to Stave It Off loyalists is that I cannot make it through a softball season without injury. The first of the season was a two-for-one special. While pitching some batting practice last week, I took a line drive off my left ankle. I decided it wasn't too bad, so I continued with practice... moving back to play shortstop for the next hitter. I wasn't trying too hard, since every step was causing a throbbing pain in my left ankle. When a long throw came in from the outfield, I lazily decided to just short hop the ball rather than getting in better position. The ball skipped just under my mitt but was stopped nicely by my right ankle. And thus I am doubly gimped just in time for the start of the season.

Bruises on the right leg are above and below the point of impact. You can almost see a softball sized circle of unblemished flesh between the two bruises. That's where I was actually hit. The big purple area on my lower left foot appears to be internal bleeding that oozed down and settled below my ankle. I know, totally gross right? The actual impact on my left leg was just above the ankle.
